  Blog Comments.
I appreciate you sending me all comments. Part is surely just my own paranoia, but I do really want to know if my perception of what people think is correct.

I do not mind if you happen to get personal contacts and do not pass on that info, but since anything you pass on to me would usually be from a source that I would have no direct access to I see no problem.

For example, if you actually did have personal contact with Summer and she asked you not to tell me her name and address, I would not expect you to pass that on. All the thinking out loud that she did voice on the blog was certainly enlightening for me.

Regarding my pen pals besides those previously discussed: I did get one letter from a guy in PA. I wrote him back and have not heard from him since. The woman from Georgia that had left her address I wrote to twice and I am pretty sure that was her response a few weeks back in the blog that she was not going to be able to write letters at this point. I did send a letter to an address in Australia but never heard back. The only other contact was the letter from the lawyer in California about the problems with the WordSmith. I have not sent him back a letter. So that is the total of all the pen pals.

About the only constant thing in mail call these days is the weekly letter from you and when that lags I might go a whole week with no mail at all. It has been over two weeks since I have gotten a letter from Mom and Dad despite a usual two letters a week from me. Since my only contact with the world and anyone that actually has something to caring to say to me is the mail, well that is why I do get a little blue when days go by and no letters appear.

I might be a little over dramatic, but remember that in most cases I would be considered guilty first and then need to prove myself innocent. If someone decides to call the prison and claim I am sending unwanted mail to his wife and that he is calling on her behalf etc. The request to see all comments is if one thing is being told to me in a letter and another is told on the blog.

That is what I was thinking about as far as comments. In addition to the general reality check mentioned above with how people feel in general about writing to me. Does that make sense? Was my letter written by an out of control person? Any other thoughts on the subject?

While I do not want to specifically piss off a staff member here, I am not too worried about that aspect of the blog at this point. I do know from hearing some staff members talk that there are some who spend time on line but as of now I have no direct indication of anyone here reading the blog.

Will work on the letter this weekend for future pen pals requests.
Just so you know, I read your blog every morning before I go to work. I've been in a bit of a blue mood myself. But like I said to you before, it just seems to be a part of me, something to expect. I do hate feeling this way. I admire you for being able to keep yourself going with your writing and reading and helping your fellow inmates with their legal dilemas. And here I sit most days wallowing. Keep the faith.
Pete, one would expect you to have ups and downs. I mean, look at what you deal with on a daily basis. I am sorry I have not had time to write the last month or so. By the time you receive this comment, you should have received at least one big envelope from me since I felt bad about not getting it to you sooner and sent it by overnight mail on Monday of this week. Hope you enjoyed it. Just wanted you to know I'm still thinking about you and wishing you well....I'll write you another letter today and let you know what I've been up to lately. Snail mail sure sucks doesn't it? Bye for now, Bobbielou p.s. please write soon. Haven't checked my office mail in about 5 days but will check today....perhaps I'll have a letter waiting. So nice to hear from you and nice to know you are okay...in that awful place! haha! Perhaps I won't get the "most wordy" award this month for this comment!
